Acacia Costales started this petition to Secretary General of the United Nations António Guterres

All human beings have the right to life, liberty ,and security of person. They cannot be tortured, and they have the right to access justice. Around the world, this right is violated by governments in pursuit of eugenics and anti-poverty efforts. 


At least 200,000 Quechua speaking, indigenous women in Peru were sterilized without their consent between 1990 to 2000.


In the guise of reducing poverty, primarily poor, Quechua speaking, indigenous people were killed and disappeared by their own government. Additionally, thousands were sterilized without their consent, most poor women. The people of Peru continue to feel the effect of emotional and physical trauma inflicted on them during the Fujimori years. 


The global community must not ignore or forget this atrocity. The United Nations must recognize the abuses that still occur despite U.N. resolutions. As an international institution focused on the protection of human rights, the UN must condemn the perpetrators and acknowledge the survivors of said abusive acts. In Peru, and around the world, women await justice.
